Künstlerkolonie













Germany, Berlin, December 27, 2016

Today I once again went to a Siedlung - residential estate. It is called the Künstlerkolonie -artists colony. It was specially built between 1927 and 1930 for theater artists, writers and journalists. In 1933 some 300 writers and artists lived in the colony. During the Nazi years many of them were persecuted. No wonder that most left Berlin and Germany. After the war a few returned to their home.
